初中-中国国家课程Middle School - Chinese National Curriculum;
中国语言文学Chinese Language and Literature
The school fully implements the Chinese National Curriculum, and focuses mainly on cultivating students' ability to understand and appreciate various literary forms, as well as the ability to clearly express their points of view. The school provides a comprehensive range of reading and learning materials and access to a wider range of learning materials, especially the bilingual versions of classic books. It is hoped that students can learn from both China and other parts of the world, and integrate between Chinese and international cultures. We not only want them to be able to absorb information and knowledge at the level of "understanding", but also hope that they can have an international perspective in thinking and cultural integration.
英语语言文学English Language and Literature
The school provides students with an immersive language environment, and effectively helps students to improve quickly in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. We help our students to learn more about the way of thinking behind the culture and the language. We hope that our students can transition easily and calmly between different cultures.
Mathematics cultivates students' ability to transform real-world situations into mathematicallanguage, as well as developing abstract thinking abilities such as induction, reasoning and proof. It links a student’s grasp of concepts to real life, and uses the mathematical knowledge they havelearned to analyse and explore problems in the real world.
Mathematics is widely used in science, engineering, technology and art, and forms the basis of many disciplines. New Oriental Academy QingDao uses a solid and effective method to ignite students' enthusiasm for learning. It uses formulas, charts and principles for interdisciplinary learning, for mathematical thinking in many fields, for the formation of abstract or figurative concepts. It gives students more space to play and to create their own ideas.
科学与技术Science and Technology
This is focused on interdisciplinary integration and exploratory learning to develop students' hands-on ability to solve practical real-world problems. We use visual and Inquiry-based teaching methods so that students can test their ideas in a practical, structured, scientific manner。
Our Humanities program leads students to access a wide range of academic courses. It helps students expand the depth and breadth of their knowledge. We hope that our students will then become a bridge between China and the world; they take the Motherland, China to the world, and bring the world back to China, their home.
Our school encourages students to actively explore their potential and creativity. Arts and sports are an essential part of this development. We take all Arts and Sports seriously and hope that every student will be able to gain from one or more aspects of these subject areas.
艺术与设计Art and Design
Art education helps students to develop self-consciousness through the learning process, as well as to explore the relationship between themselves and others and the world. They gradually develop abilities to come up with own ideas of social and cultural issues. The New Oriental Academy QingDao attaches great importance to the development of studenf s art, encourages students to take the initiative to explore, using their imagination. The school combines the origins and characteristics of Chinese and international art. The encouragement of creativity in art, and cooperation between national and international teachers, benefit students and help to develop children's artistic literacy, and bring a more colourful life experience to them.
体育与健康Sports and Health
The school encourages all students to be active in 1 or 2 sports that will accompany them through their lifetime. Sport is an important factor in character building. It teaches perseverance, dedication and is good for physical and mental health. Our school offers a number of sports clubs and requires students to choose one every semester for study and exercise. We provide students with excellent facilities for sports, and hope to help students develop a passion for one or more sports.
The New Oriental Academy QingDao will invite well-known professors from world best universities to teach or lecture in campus, so that students can connect with the world-class education and teaching on campus.
The New Oriental Academy QingDao provides students with a large number of research activities. We encourage students to take on social responsibilities, to enjoy a variety of life experiences, to strengthen their interpersonal communication skills and problem-solving abilities. Our students can therefore take China to the world and bring the world back to China.
